Next Stop for Google Street View: The Amazon

Google has been taking its Street View cars and trikes to some interesting locations lately. You can already get a close-up look at Stonehenge and meander through the National Museum of Iraq. The next project for Street View, though, looks like the most adventurous Google has taken this technology, though: the Amazon. As part of this new project, Google will “pedal the Street View trike along the narrow dirt paths of the Amazon villages and maneuver it up close to where civilization meets the rainforest.” In addition, the Street View team will also take pictures from a boat as it travels down the river.
